Subpart N—Outer Continental Shelf Civil Penalties


§250.1477   How may BSEE collect the penalty?

(a) BSEE may use all available means to collect the penalty including, but not limited to:

(1) Requiring the lease surety, for amounts owed by lessees, to pay the penalty;

(2) Deducting the amount of the penalty from any sums the United States owes to you; and

(3) Using judicial process to compel your payment under 30 U.S.C. 1719(k).

(b) If the Department uses judicial process, or if you seek judicial review under §250.1474 and the court upholds assessment of a penalty, the court shall have jurisdiction to award the amount assessed plus interest assessed from the date of the expiration of the 90-day period referred to in §250.1474. The amount of any penalty, as finally determined, may be deducted from any sum owing to you by the United States.
